Final Examinations for Fall and Spring Semesters
Final examinations in full-semester classes are compliant with University policy when administered during the Final Examination Week according to the Final Examination Schedule. Final examinations for the 7-week session classes and for summer classes are to be administered on the day of the last class meeting and are not subject to the Final Examination Schedule nor to the No-Test Days policy.
- Finals for 4-credit and 5-credit classes will be given according to the MWF schedule.
- Laboratory exams are to be given during the hour assigned on the test period schedule.
- If a class does not start at the time listed above, the final will be given at the closest previous time.
Broadcast and Online Course Finals
Finals for all evening broadcast courses beginning after 4:30 p.m. should be given during the first scheduled broadcast meeting of finals week. Online course finals should be given anytime during the finals week. All course finals are expected to be finished by 5:00 p.m. on the last day of the session/semester.
Testing Center Finals
Finals given in campus testing centers must be submitted to the Testing Center at least two(2) business days prior to the exam. Students are encouraged to schedule exams as early as possible. Exams should allow students a two-day window and follow the scheduled below to minimize conflicts and meet demand:
|First Class Meeting Day||Final Exam Days|
|Monday||Monday - Tuesday|
|Tuesday||Tuesday - Wednesday|
|Wednesday||Wednesday - Thursday|
|Thursday||Thursday - Friday|
|Friday||Thursday - Friday|
|Online||Monday - Friday|
Excessive Finals on One Day
Students who have three or more finals scheduled during one day and who desire to have one of those tests moved to another day during the final exam period must:
- Obtain a copy of their official registration that is dated no more than 7 days prior to the beginning of the first test day, and
- Seek permission from one of the instructors to change the hour of their final examination. Adverse decisions from all instructors may be appealed through the deans of the colleges involved.
No-Test Days Policy
A five-day period designated as "no-test" days precedes final examinations. During this time, no major examinations, including final examinations will be given in order that students may concentrate on classwork, the completion of special assignments, writing projects, and other preparation for duly scheduled final examinations. Approved exceptions include: final papers, weekly chapter quizzes, quizzes, projects, and examinations associated with a lab that does not meet during final examinations. The No-Test Days policy does not apply to classes that are part of a 7-week session or to classes offered during the summer term.
Where possible, it is highly recommended that due dates for papers, projects, or assignments that are worth a significant portion of a student’s grade have deadlines that occur the week prior to No-Test days and two weeks prior to final examinations. This honors the spirit of No-Test Days and allows faculty more flexibility to grade these assignments before final grades are due.
